Well okay , yeah I have a Window problem Right Back Window . "Window Motor" works but window will not stay rolled up , so I have taped window shut with Clear Packing Tape it works find until rain or it get's old and stop's holding all together . But I try hard not to let it bother me only because I know a place that sell's the part I need CHEAP discountbodyparts.com I don't bother going to Pontiac dealer because I know all they want is your money and if you don't have much money well it's not too smart to go there . My boyfriend or his brother are good at fixing cars and there problems . So all I have to do is buy "Window Regulator" at that website I told you all about , they are really good on their price's a "Window Regulator" cost 40.26 for front window and back is just a little more but not to much more . Here is link if link works , if not copy and paste it and Google search it . http://www.discountbodyparts.com/catalog/?N=1697+11519+4294963365+9331&Nr=OR%28brand:Replacement,brand:Kool%20Vue,brand:Perfect%20Fit,brand:US%20Auto%20Parts%29

So this is what I plan on doing very soon , with the money I will be so thankfully getting from a insurance check my grandmother left me when she past on Thanks Grandma I miss ya very much . :-) Well , if you know someone who can help you fix the window or a place that will let you buy your own part for them to put in for you then stop by this website first they are really a very good site for car parts . I give this Website a 5 * rating.

None of my windows work except the back right window. It's very annoying and they all went out around the same time. Everyone I know with a grand am has the same problem.

One day my window randomly stopped working. I chose to just not use it and ignored the problem until one day i decided to see if it would work again. To my surprise it actually worked. I went to show my mom that it worked and then I went to put the window up and it wouldn't go back up. So I had to put ducked tape on my window until i got it fixed for $100....A couple months later it stopped working again and now neither of my windows work and my sun roof barely works.

Initially the window broke in May of 2006. I had the window fixed, in which the shop replaced the regulator and whole assembly with a newer design i. e. Larger regulator along with a assembly of wires and pulleys on front and rear window tracks. This worked well till January 2007. Tore the door apart once again to see if I could fix the problem my self. What I noticed was that the sleeve that slips on the the bottom of the rear of the window had fallen off. This then caused the window to be unsupported on the back end creating a heavy load on the front mount. Once the sleeve had fallen off the window it can not find its way back onto the window. Then by continually trying the window initially before ripping the door apart caused the wires to f*ck up the cheap ass plastic pulleys that they ride in to break and creating a general mess. So once again I took it in to be fixed. Now here I am one..... I repeat one week later writing this because it has broke again!! It is about 10 degrees out and I live in an apartment with no garage. I believe that the solution is to permanently secure the sleeve to the bottom of the window so that the motherf*cker does not slip off again. This mickey mouse f*cking design is bullshit, and the retard that tried to reinvent the wheel to move a god damn window up and down should be shot. Other than that the vehicle has treated me very well, as I have taken excellent care of it.
